Peggy Sue reveal album artwork + tour dates


FFS’s favourite three-piece Peggy Sue have revealed the album artwork and tracklisting for their brilliant debut album Fossils and Other Phantoms, which will be released on 5th April 2010.

Peggy Sue’s Katy Young said: “Fossils was recorded over a year in Brooklyn, Brighton and London. It is made up of entirely unreleased material because we wanted it to exist as a whole in the way that our favourite albums do rather than being a collection of songs.

“Most of the album is about endings in one way or another, the title refers to both the absences and remnants of those endings and the empty spaces in the artwork reflect this theme. It was created by Benjamin Phillips whose path we crossed a couple of years ago whilst we were all living in Brighton, he has been making artwork for us ever since.”

The tracklisting is:

  1. Long Division Blues
  2. Yo Mama
  3. I Read It In The Paper
  4. Green Grow The Rushes
  5. Watchman
  6. She Called
  7. Careless Talk Costs Lives
  8. The Remainder
  9. Matilda
  10. February Snow
  11. Fossils
  12. The Shape We Made
